Congratulations to Frances Hayashida, associate professor of anthropology, who was recently awarded a Fulbright Award to study and teach in Chile in Fall 2018. The award covers four months of teaching and research, including teaching in the graduate program in the Department of Anthropology at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, and collaborating with colleagues from the Universidad de Chile, the Universidad Católica del Norte (San Pedro de Atacama), and the Spanish National Research Council on fieldwork on late prehispanic water management, land use, and ritual practices in the high-altitude, hyperarid Atacama Desert. The research continues an ongoing collaboration that has been previously funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT, Chile), the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the National Geographic Society, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and UNM's Latin American and Iberian Institute.
